    Hey all,

    I just got my Roamio and want to transfer my Season Passes from my Premiere XL4, but when I select that option on the website all DVRs say that I don't have any Season Passes setup.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Lon

    Try it again as there were problems with the TiVo website before. I helped my friend transfer about 110 SP's and it went fine.

    My Season Pass transfer worked great on tivo.com website.

    You have to make sure you select your "old" Tivo under the "from" column (at the left) from the drop down menu, then the new Roamio under the drop down menu at the "to" column at the right. You are probably selecting your Roamio at the "from" column.

    You can also use the free KMTTG program. It requires doing a little reading on how to use it, and getting used to the user interface, but it works well. :)

    I used the website season pass manager with poor results. 30 of my 60 season passes showed as "Corrupt" on the Roamio season pass list and had to all be manually deleted, and the 30 it transferred were in random order, basiclly making the whole thing useless

    I used TiVo.com earlier this morning to transfer over 20 or so SP's. I'll have to wait till I'm home later to see if they are corrupt.

    ETA: I'm sure I'll have corrupt SP's since many are not in the guide. Guess I'll delete the corrupt ones and use kmttg.

    In my case, with six tuners, the order of my SP is meaningless.

    For those seeing SP's that transfer over as "Corrupt - Delete Me", wait a couple days before actually deleting any of those. This is typically an issue with coordinating all the SP's with the database in Tivo Box. Many, if not all of them will resolve on their own if left alone.

    Too bad you did not research prior to deleting. That is what happens when moving them without the show being in the guide. The "corruption" is solved once the new season starts.

    I thought that maybe was the case, but many shows with no new scheduled episodes transferred fine, the corruption had no pattern

    The problem with the corrupt passes is that Tivo doesn't indicate which corrupt pass belongs to which show. Because SPM does not retain season pass order, it's very frustrating trying to determine which passes need to be recreated.

    I keep pushing KMTTG. It actually works correctly, transferring passes in the correct order and successfully creating passes for shows currently missing in the guide.

    I used TiVo.com when I copied my wife's SPs to her Premiere last year and she ended up with a ton of these "Corrupt" ones and the order was all out of whack.

    Last night I used kmttg to copy my SPs to my new Roamio and it not only maintained the order it was able to create the SP properly for all the shows that aren't in the guide.

    This, although I only have 4 tuners. I seriously doubt I'll ever have to worry about the order of my SP's.

    I still like to organize mine. I have about 115 SP's, a lot of junk :>, but I don't like to watch anything live as I like to skip fast thru shows.

    I spent about 15-20 minutes grouping the top 50 SP's in a rough order, but the rest I let go as many are just filler and if they record fine if not thats OK too.

    I just make sure all my network shows are at the top. Cable shows repeat network shows don't. So as long as I do that I never miss anything. Although now that I have 6 tuners I doubt I'll ever even have a conflict.

    It doesn't matter which column you use. I've copied from the right column to the left and copied from the left column to the right. The results have been identical. The SPs I selected are copied over.

    I meant he/she was trying to copy "from" the new Tivo Roamio. That is of course is empty since no SPs on it.
